Day 232: 1 Million Views Contest


In honor of reaching 1,000,000 views, all of the little folks that help make a LEGO a day possible have come out to thank you. You guys did it! You, the fans! Thank you! So, they’ve come together for a little contest for you.

———– *** CONTEST  &  RULES *** ———–

Guess the number of minifigs in this photo. These are all the minifigs I own.
–HINT: You can try to count them, but many are blocked and hidden by others – good luck with that.
–HINT: It’s not as many as you might have thought I had, but it’s a pretty good amount.

To enter, simply leave a comment below with your # guess.
YOU MAY ONLY GUESS ONCE – so make it a good one.
(I can see where comments come from, so no shenanigans! Be fair to the large number of kids that visit here)
–Look at the previous entries before you guess – if you duplicate a prior guess #, yours will be void.
–All entries MUST have an contact email – or your entry will be void. If you win I need to be able to contact you.

–If no one guesses the exact number, the next closest either above or below, will be the winner.
For instance, if the exact # was 50, and two people guessed 47 and 52. The person who guessed 52 would win as it’s closer. This isn’t The Price Is Right, you can go over!!🙂
In the event there is a tie for closest both above & below, then the person who entered FIRST will be the winner.

*** CONTEST IS OPEN UNTIL 6pm EST MONDAY MARCH 21, 2011 ***

!!! PRIZE !!!
As stated, the winner will receive the yet to be published photobook chronicling the greatest hits of the two 365 projects.

GOOD LUCK

    March 20, 2011 at 12:32 pm

  39. “293” is my guess. Mini fact: there have been close to 3,000 “different” mini-figures produced by LEGO and over 4 billion produced since their appearance (invasion) in 1978. Look out world; they are taking over! Better be nice to a mini-figure today – whoha, ha, ha

    166 – my first 26 guesses were taken! I guess I am not very fast….

    Dare I believe 150 is still open? If so, that’s my guess. If not, my guess is the correct number. = )

  165. My son’s guess is 168. Hard to find a number that wasn’t already taken.
    Thanks for the contest. My son still loves you website. (We met you at a bookstore event in VA.)
